My Life: Born To Vlog, CBBC

Award-winning documentary series My Life is back on CBBC with some incredible stories to tell.

Twelve year-old Nikki Lilly is busy - and it all happened by chance. Her rare medical condition, which gives her heavy nosebleeds and headaches, has led to Nikki missing loads of school. So to keep herself busy she decided - with her parents on board - to start a vlog.

Now, three years later, she is an international hit with a global following. Her ‘getting ready for prom’ vlog has had over 1,500,000 views. The CBBC cameras follow her across the summer as she travels to Denver, Colorado for groundbreaking surgery, keeps up her vlog and becomes a contestant and eventual winner of Junior Bake Off.

Timed to coincide with Safer Internet Day on 7 February, Nikki also meets one of her vlogging heroes Em Ford, whose video went viral when she highlighted the abuse she received from internet trolls. She talks to Nikki about staying safe online and how to deal with negative comments.
